Seminar for College-bound Musicians, Intern Opportunity for Teachers, Open
House for Parents and Younger Students

The National Resource Center for Blind Musicians is accepting applications
for its seminar for blind college-bound musicians, which will be held July
17-23
at the Overbrook School for the Blind in Philadelphia.  Designed for the
serious student, age 16 and older, or in or beyond tenth grade, the program
tailors instruction to each person's need to develop braille music and
theory skills, and the use of technology to submit written music
assignments.  Applicants must have already studied some music theory, be
willing to put effort into braille music study, and demonstrate a commitment
to use the braille music and computer skills they will learn at the
Institute when they return to school.  Applicants must also show that they
have the independence skills, social readiness and maturity to be a
contributing part of a close-knit group.  Space is available for six
students.  Program cost is $1100, with partial scholarships of up to $500
available.  Complete information is at
www.blindmusicstudent.org/summer_institute.htm.

To request an application, which requires an audition tape and
recommendation forms to be completed by teachers, contact David Goldstein at
info@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx or by phone at 203-366-3300.
Deadline: All application materials must be in the Resource Center office by
May 11.

Intern Options for teachers, Open House for Younger Students and Parents:

For a reasonable tuition fee and willingness to help out during the week,
school teachers can come to gain skills to bring home to their own students.
Living and working with the group, they will observe the methods of teaching
braille music and receive hands-on training from visiting staff of Dancing
Dots on using technology to transcribe music into braille. Trainees can
share their talents and abilities to enhance students' learning and
recreation experience.

Parents of younger students are invited to contact us about arranging a
short appointment to bring Braille music beginners for evaluation and
guidance.

Contact David Goldstein at 203-366-3300, Extension 229, or
info@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx to explore possibilities.
